Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

Hey guys,

Just bought a 77' CS 27 "after five". its a shoal draft keel and besides a little polishing of the hull and wiring in the cabin shes sound as a pound! hope to be taking her on our first big trip with her to the Main duck islands with my dad soon. (out of Trident Yacht Club). Being young (me in the picture), sailing around in 420s for many years, and being a dockhand at my local marina this is my first keelboat. and I love it!

Cheers, Shayne

Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

After years of sailing a Laser 2 I have just added a CS 22 to my fleet. It hardly qualifies as a yacht, and its status has recently changed from "sailable" to "project boat" thanks to low water levels this year. a large submerged rock that isn't on the charts, and the freakishly long rudder on a CS 22. As a newby with fewer than 10 posts I can't post photos yet, but I would be interested in connecting with other 22 owners.

Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

A good, solid and strong name.

We inherited the name Grand Illusion when we purchased her.
While the immediate thought goes back to that song by Styx, I like to think otherwise.

Websters' offers that grand suggests something that is big, lavish, sumptuous, or wonderful...

According to Wiki, (and we all know how accurate that is), and illusion is a distortion of reality.
"The term illusion refers to a specific form of sensory distortion. Unlike a hallucination, which is a distortion in the absence of a stimulus, an illusion describes a misinterpretation of a true sensation. For example, hearing voices regardless of the environment would be a hallucination, whereas hearing voices in the sound of running water (or other auditory source) would be an illusion."

So, our boat is really a big, wonderul distortion of the senses...
I'll go with that.

Also, to rename her, there is this whole sacrifice the virgin on the bow thing, and where'd we find one of those????

Damn HB, we missed you. We went Saturday and opted for sunning in the backyard yesterday. Congrats on 1st year anniversary. Special indeed.

Ska'ana is the Haida word for the killer whale or orca. In Haidan myth the orca is a very powerful spirit. Orca has always fascinated me and the biggest thrill of my lifetime was to be in a 26ft RIB in the Strait of Juan de Fuca when we were surrounded by a pod of killers whales. The RIB felt like a dingy when the dominant male in the pod surfaced a few feet away. Saw the whites of his eyes. A magical moment.

When we acquired her she had the most dreadful name that wasn't at all dignified. Ska'ana seemed only fitting and so we changed her name upon purchase. The fact that she is blue and when hoisted in the air in the travel-lift (something that makes me cringe every time I see it) she looks like a whale to me. So Ska'ana it is.

Thanks for asking BTW.
